These are unprecedented times and difficult times. Just how difficult is not yet clear, and it’s this uncertainty that influences our decision making the most.

Plastic Drums and IBCs: Don’t Ignore Them

At times like these, it’s easy to “park” something that doesn’t seem immediately relevant -in this case waste and scrap materials-and leave it to be dealt with at some future point when we think we will have more time or more money. It’s a natural instinct when we are being bombarded from all sides by complex and challenging concerns. This is particularly true where we have the space to store our waste and problem material – it’s the “out of sight, out of mind” approach.

Remember: we buy plastic drums!

But your waste streams may be part of the solution – there may be value in the material you consider to be scrap. Not only might you get some cashback for those plastic drums and IBC tanks that are taking up space in your yard, but also by finding a solution now you will be ahead of the game in the “green” shake-up that is coming. The current crisis has led many policymakers to call on us to use this moment as an opportunity to radically re-think our environmental, waste and recycling strategies. It won’t be the only way we retune our lives, but it will be a significant one. The current “light-touch” regulatory approach won’t last for ever, either. What we do know for sure is that, in industry, every penny will count going forward.

IBC Recycling in Manchester: It's what we do!

At Packaging Reuse, we make it as simple as we can for the client. Send us a picture of your IBCs and plastic drums, a quick note on what they have previously been used for and we’ll tell you what we can do. We have a dedicated Environmental Chemist and more than 30 years’ experience in re-using and recycling your plastic packaging, and a site that specialises in bespoke approaches to dealing with each item to maximise the return. This allows us to add value to your material in a very tailored way.

Of course, it’s not always possible to give you money back for your packaging, but often we can move it FOC or reduce your costs – always while making sure your solution is as high-up the Waste Hierarchy and as compliant as it can and should be. There is no cost associated with our advice and quotation, and for the sake of a few minutes of your time, there may be considerable benefit.
